Certain limits apply, which are included in the Declarations Page of your policy under "Limit – Car Rental Expense – Each Day, Each Loss."

"Each Day" = the most we will pay for the daily rental charge ($25 in this example).

  • If a dollar amount appears, we will pay the daily rental charge up to that dollar amount.
  • If a percentage appears, we will pay that percentage of the daily rental charge.

"Each Loss" = the most we will pay for Car Rental Expense incurred as a result of any one loss ($600 in this example).
